COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Ed. note: The label states that the brewery is Steinhaus, which does not own a facility. This beer appears to be brewed at two facilities, the second one being August Schell in New Ulm, MN.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2004 Says from Steinhaus Brewery in New Ulm, MN. Weird. anyways 2004 bottle. Pours a nice robust copper-orange. Clear and filtered. Big light straw colored head. Smells lightly of wet barley and maybe a hint of hops. Begins with a medium-full flavor that is wet, surprisingly flavorful and mostly malty (honey, buttered bread). Mouthfeel is fairly creamy with some dryness coming from the barley and hops. Hops add a good level of spiciness. The flavors won't knock your socks off, but they are all detectable and in a good balance. A great session ale and awesome for the price.

well, at 75 cents/bottle, what the heck? It is amber with a musty aroma. There's not much flavor behind it, iether.

Great for the price. This beer was $$ for a six pack at trader joes. Decently hoppy for an amber ale. Very smooth, soft on the tongue. Very drinkable ale.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2007 Re-rate 3/11/07. Bottle. I have no recollection of having this beer before. Some alcohol and some malt in the nose. Not much head. Slightly hazy amber. Thin off-white head. Basic brew. Some hop, but more malt. Ok. Nothing spectacular. I hope I remember not to buy this again. 12/26/03: Very sweet aroma with some mild hops and some malt. Hazy burnt orange in color wit slow carbonation and a mostly diminishing off-white head. Initial mouthfeel is malty with some sweetness, enough to prevent it from being overly malty. Has a floral, fruity zing in the finish to make it interesting. Consumed it while eating some spicy Chinese food which really brought out some pepper. Probably not the best rating conditions. Not bad, but nothing spectacular. Ar 7, Ap 3, Fl 7, Pal 4, Ov 12.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2008 An easy drinking amber-ale. For 3.99 a sixer at Trader Joes, it’s one you can get the friends while you stock up on Chimay

Not bad but not great. Certainly better then miller, bud and the like. It is a sweet and sour beer that is refreshing. It does taste better as it warms but it is not amazingly good or anything. Just a pleasent drink.

Good christ does this have alot of hops in the aroma for an amber. A solid cherry color with a sloppy few bubs on top. Tastes like angelfood cake for some reason, really good body, yet kinda fades al lill at the end. I can dig this beer.

Cute. Decent head and good lace. Fairly smooth with just an undertone of bitters.

Good color and had a slight redish hue to it. The taste however was less than desirable. It was a little to malty for an amber. The hops and malts were out of balance.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2003
Great looking ale - poured reddish amber with a generous off-white head which left delicate lacing. Interesting aroma, very sweet and fruity, toasted malts and papaya with light hops. Flavor is also very sweet - unbalanced and a bit cloying. Lots of caramel malts, prunes, a little hop bite and a long raisin finish. Palate is medium to full body and almost, but not quite, creamy.
